Two men, one rattlesnake and an RV, it sounds like the beginning of a bad joke.
According to Phoenix’s 12News, this was in fact background of a real dispute in Texas. One man is now facing accusations he bit a snake’s rattle off to make it harder to detect before putting it in his neighbors home, an RV.
Felton Ryan Saunter, 39, has been charged him with deadly conduct and trespassing after a police investigation says he used a snake for revenge on a neighbor after a disagreement.
According to the arrest affidavit, another man who lives in the RV saw Saunter leaving the vehicle before finding the snake on the driver’s side of the RV.
The man says he killed the snake and called Caldwell County deputies who then arrested Saunter.
